Technothlon is an international school championship organized by the student fraternity of IIT Guwahati. Technothlon began in 2004 in a small room with an aim to ‘Inspire Young Minds’. Starting on our journey with a participation of 200 students confined to the city of Guwahati, over the past 10 years it  expanded our reach to over 150 cities all over India and various centers abroad. The championship is organized over 2 rounds: a written preliminary examination which takes place in numerous schools all over India in the month of July and mains - which is conducted at IIT Guwahati, among the top 100 students from each squad.

Eligibility
Students participate in teams of two. There are two squads:
Junior Squad – Students of classes 9th and 10th
Hauts Squad – Students of classes 11th and 12th

The students should be studying in IX or X STD. For a student to be appearing for Hauts squad examination, he/she must have passed the X board examination and not appeared for the XII board examination. The members can belong to the same class or as well as different class. For example: a team consisting of one member from class IX and one of class X is perfectly acceptable. The basic requirements for team formation are they should consist exactly two members from the same squad and the same school. 

The championship is held in two stages:
Prelims - Date yet to be finalised
Mains - To be held at IIT Guwahati during Techniche 2015


Syllabus
Prelims is in general a subjective + objective written exam. It involves no syllabus or general knowledge and relies solely on the student’s logical and analytical thinking abilities. The exam is generally of 2 and ½ hour length. The question paper will have various sections like maths, puzzles, code crunchers etc. Each section has its own marking scheme. It is held nationwide, at selected cities on the 2nd Sunday of the month of July.
While Mains is an event based competition. The selected teams of the same squad compete against each other in various events during Techniche. Each team will have to face 3 events from which top 5 teams from each squad will be selected for the Final Showdown. The events, like prelims, do not require any prerequisite knowledge and students will be taught any extra knowledge they require. The events vary every year and in the past there have been events like Robotics, Crime Scene Investigation, Helicopter Design, Source Code etc.
In addition to these, students can attend the workshops and fun events to spend the night. Mains is conducted during “Techniche”, the Techno-Management Festival of IIT Guwahati, held during the first week of September. Other than events, the students can witness the competitions of Techniche, attend the Lecture Series of famous personalities, watch laser shows and Nite performances.
